Mouse Brain Atlas (Ma-Benveniste-Mirrione)

For the analysis of mouse brain data the Mouse (Ma-Benveniste-Mirrione) VOI atlas [1,2] is available. It represents the minimum deformation atlas of 10 C57BL/6J mice (male, 12-14 weeks, 25-30g). We would like to thank Helene Benveniste and Martine Mirrione for providing the data and helping with the integrations.


Spatial Normalization

Two normalization templates are available in the fusion tool:

Mouse (Ma-Benveniste-Mirrione)-FDG: This is an FDG baseline PET template as illustrated below.

Mouse (Ma-Benveniste-Mirrione)-T2: This is a T2-weighted MRI PET template which is in the same space as the PET templates.

The images of these templates can be found in the resources/templates/usertemplates directory.

VOI Atlas

The VOI atlas Mouse (Ma-Benveniste-Mirrione) can be selected in the list of included template VOIs. The corresponding files can be found in the resources/templates/voitemplates/Mouse (Ma-Benveniste-Mirrione) directory.
